Juice Production Newsletter #4

I would like to spend the majority of this week’s newsletter giving recognition to the fantastic cast and crew of Juice. The film would not be possible without their commitment and hard work. I have found that sometimes it can get a bit confusing reading the credits after a film with official titles such as “best boy”, “rigger”, or even “property master”. As I introduce you to each member of our cast and crew, I will explain what their credits mean to alleviate some of the confusion of who-does-what on a movie set…

The reality within and about cinema is frequently blurred. Movie-going audiences are often led into a narrative, naively believing every moment of the images flickering before their eyes. While some films allow the audience to indulge in this comfort, David Lynch’s bizarre 2001 masterpiece, Mulholland Drive, calls attention to the construction of identities in cinema and the illusion of realities. Mulholland Drive’s “Club Silencio” segment (1:45:31 to 1:53:15) demonstrates how formal and stylistic elements in film, such as narrative structure and editing, can tease the audience by creating false realities and identities, all the while warning the viewers of this construct…
